Namilyango defeat Budo in Schools league opener

Namilyango College beat Kings College Budo 22-06 to win their first group game, and start their title defense on a good note.

Kings College Budo started the game on a more positive note but missed a penalty and Namilyango pounced on the trot. A line break from skipper and full back, Gavin Mutara saw him offload to lock Debuni Peter who had no one marking him and the big man scored. Gavin failed to convert, and Budo were soon back into it with a penalty. Like the first try from the Ngonians, they found space on the lower end of the pitch and scrum half Olupot Jonathan scored in the same spot as Debuni had earlier, and again, Gavin failed to convert. Sooner rather than later, fly half Opio Ezekiel found space in the middle, gliding past Budonians defense to score in the middle but again the kicker failed with the extras. With that score, the Ngonians ended the half in the lead 15-06.

The Ngonians enjoyed a clean sweep over the Budonians with all the teams victorious.

After the break, Budonians again were ruling the contest but could not seem to string more than three passes together, and it was the Ngonians who scored the only points of the half, through the big man Kakula Frank, and this time, Gavin converted, to push the Ngonians to a 22-06 win. Kakula was named man of the match for his dominace in the pack.

Elsewhere, Smackists were 27-00 away winners at Makerere College School.
